Informacje na temat Eiriksjökull

 

The  1675 meter high Eiriksjokull is located in the Borgarfjordur district, just east of Langjokull glacier. Eiriksjokull lies on the fringes of the Icelandic highlands and West Iceland.

If seen as a part of West Iceland, Eiriksjokull is its highest mountain. It is a glacier-covered tuff mountain (table mountain covered with basalt at the top), with a glacier shield that covers around 22 km2. 

Eiriksjokull is situated in the middle of Hallmundarhraun lava field, which also includes Surtshellir lava tube, the longest cave in Iceland. Due to its steep screes, Eiriksjokull offers a challenge for hikers.
